Each school district shall provide services to students with disabilities in order to meet the needs of those students in accordance with 34 CFR § 300.26.Instructional arrangements/settings shall be based on the individual needs and IEPs of eligible students receiving special education services.
What We Do
Special education instruction and related services are sometimes provided to a student with a disability in a setting other than the general education classroom. A special education resource room is a classroom where a special education program can be delivered to a student with a disability. This setting may be utilized when it is necessary to meet the needs of the student with a disability in a setting other than the general education classroom due to the need for extensive modification of the presentation of materials, methods of response of the student, setting, accommodations and/or the timing and scheduling of the materials.
Due to the necessity of such extensive accommodations the student's ARD Committee may determine that the needs of the student cannot be met in the general education environment and that services (full or partial) should be provided in a special education resource room.
Decisions to place a student in a resource room setting are based on the individual needs of the student, as determined by the student's IEP. A student receiving this level of support will generally receive some instruction in the special education resource room and some instruction in the general education classroom with modifications and/or accommodations.
